For the past few decades, employee engagement programmes have included the same stale social events. From after-work drinks, summer BBQs to pot-luck lunches… it’s about time we shook things up, right?!

If you are looking to get creative with your internal events, Plant Workshops are a fantastic way to breathe life into your office’s social calendar! Not only will team members learn a new skill, they will have an opportunity to connect with their colleagues and nature in a stress-free, fun environment. 

All the Good Vibes 

Team Building 

A Gallup Workplace study found that close work friendships can help boost employee satisfaction by 50%!  Now, we can’t promise life-long bonds, but our workshops can provide an opportunity for employees to spend time together and connect in a stress-free, fun environment. 

Boost Team Morale 

Hosting regular office activities can have a powerful impact on workplace morale and amplifies employee engagement. In fact, according to an article by the Harvard Business Review, employers that promote positive working cultures report increases in loyalty and relationships amongst their team members.

Learn New Skills 

Whether your team are budding horticulturists, green-thumbed gardeners or complete beginners, there’s something for everyone at our workshops! Each participant gets a chance to get stuck in, learn information, practice skills and take something home with them. 


Support for Event Organisers 

We understand how much blooming work goes into running events within your office, which is why we do all of the dirty work for you… literally!

Our workshops are;

  • Suitable for groups of any size and ability 
  • Catered to your office size, no matter how big or small
  • Fully supplied with everything you need
  • Neat and tidy! We offer a full set-up and clean-up service before and after the workshop
